Always a treat to go to Tbar! Been going ever since I moved to NYC 18 years ago (same restaurant, same owner, back then it was a Lenox Room) and Tony, the owner, and his crew have delivered wonderful food, atmosphere, friendly, and all around great place! Food is always consistently great which is truly rare and a delight! Thank you Tony!!!

I would go back just for the bread basket and butter alone. I’m sorry that I even had a bite to start but once tasted it was just too good to pass up. You know the type I’m talking about. Beware of the delicious bread if you’re one of those people. The menu is perfect and could pretty much please anyone. The steak tartare is delicious. The seared tuna is delicious. Good wine and cocktails. Really good service. I really enjoyed my time here. This is one of those restaurants that you could bring anyone for any occasion and everyone will be happy. It was just lively enough. I really loved it.

I love T-Bar so much. I can't wait to go back. The food is so different that any other restaurant I've
been to before. This was my second time there and everything was exactly the same as the first time.
I woke up the next morning wanting more and everything I ate.
The service is exceptional and I can't wait to go back. I live in Brooklyn and driving into Manhattan is not
always the most pleasant trip to make. But T-Bar is worth the tip. HIghly recommended!!!

The food was good but there were too many levels of staff that continually roamed around our table. Felt like the minute we ate the last nite they grabbed for the plates. Also order a simple cup of coffee and it needed to be passed through three different levels of staff to get delivered and not in a timely manner. I will not be looking to return to this restaurant.

I thought the food was delicious. From the fresh guac & chips to the warm apple crisp for desert. I had the chicken Milanese. Wasn’t greasy and the mixed greens on top were crisp & fresh. NY strip was grilled to perfection and got a delicious side of sautéed spinach. T Bar salad was also a delight!

T-Bar is the neighborhood "go to" for dinner as a couple or dinner with friends. The vibe is New York style, relaxed and friendly. The food is delicious, well portioned and well prepared. Steaks are of high quality, burgers are full of flavor, the pizza has a crackling crust, chicken Milanese is crisp, light and complemented with a delicious salad. The price point, like the service is approachable, the wine list friendly, the drinks are generous. This is a solid destination, a place to become a "regular"
